Governmental plan answer book

Recommended Posts

I am on Panel Publishers mailing list and I have not seen an "Answer Book" dealing with Government plans of any kind. However, assuming your question is about pension plans, in 1988 the GFOA published a handbook written by Joseph Metz called The Federal Taxation of Public Employee Retirement Systems -A Handbook for Public Officials. I don't know if the book has been kept up to date, but the GFOA may be a good place to start. Let us know if you find an updated book.

I believe I read somewhere that Carol Calhoun was coauthoring an Answer book for Governmental plans. Perhaps she will be able to let us know if such a book is still planned.

Yes, Cindie Moore (Washington counsel for the National Council on Teacher Retirement) and I are coauthoring such a book. Still working on getting the last few chapters to the publisher.

Carol:

Will you incorporate the new tax law into the first edition of your book or wait to update after the book is initially published?

It will include information on the new tax bill, although in some instances we may have to do it in the form of a summary at the end of a chapter, rather than being able to fully incorporate it into the chapter itself. (First the new 401(a)(9) rules, now this--is it any wonder it's taking longer than anticipated?) ;)
